The course is centred on the design and evaluation of usable, useful and fun interactive products, both with and for children; children are a major user group of interactive technology, and they represent a significant market for new hardware and software products; they are key users of mobile technology, communication software, educational products, and utility software including web browsers, word processors and e-mail; many of these products have been designed for adults, and they can be problematic when used by children.

Core modules: Critical analysis (semester 1); interaction design and evaluation (semester 1); advanced topics in HCI (semester 1); child computer interaction (semester 2); MRes project (semesters 2 and 3).
